Attendance Zone Review: Project 2020

An Attendance Zone Review for Mansfield ISD's continued growth was conducted April 2018 in response to the demographic report presented during the Dec. 19, 2017 school board meeting.

 

The review addressed the developing growth in the southern and southeastern portion of MISD and accommodate the district's newest campuses - Brenda Norwood Elementary School, Alma Martinez Intermediate School, Charlene McKinzey Middle School - being constructed under the May 2017 bond package.

An Attendance Zone Review Committee provided feedback in addressing the attendance zones.

Frequently Asked Questions

For students in elementary, intermediate, middle, and high school, when will the zone change take effect?

The changes will likely occur at the start of the 2020-21 school year. However, construction timelines may require a later start date than August 2020.

Will students be grandfathered into their current school?

At the April 2018 board meeting, student options (grandfathered students) will be recommended to the school board. Details to follow.

Does a school’s academic or athletic performance influence where the lines are drawn?

No.

Will schools be getting portable buildings?

The district does everything possible to avoid putting in portables at campuses.

Are the committee meetings open to the general public?

Committee meetings are open to the public. However, visitors are limited to observation only.

Why are Daulton Elementary and Spencer Elementary not being addressed in the rezoning?

The intent of the attendance rezoning is to set zones for the three new schools that passed in the May 2017 bond package and to relieve overpopulation at Mary Lillard Intermediate School, Danny Jones Middle School and Lake Ridge High School.

While enrollments at Daulton Elementary and Spencer Elementary are higher than other elementary schools in the district, Daulton Elementary shows to max out at 790 students in the 2024-25 school year, and a slight decline is projected to occur through the 2027-28 school year at Spencer Elementary.

What is the plan to relieve Lillard Intermediate and Jones Middle schools until the new schools open in 2020?

Until the 2020-21 rezoning takes effect, new enrollees may be enrolled in another intermediate or middle school in the district.

Will 8th graders at Jones Middle School have the option to stay in the Lake Ridge High School attendance zone?

At the April 2018 board meeting, student options (grandfathered students) will be recommended to the school board. Details to follow.

If there is capacity at Timberview High School (THS), why not adjust the zoning and send some students to THS to relieve enrollment for Lake Ridge High School?

In August 2017, Timberview High became home to the district’s Early College High School. The program will eventually grow to an enrollment of 400 students. That means if Timberview’s enrollment is 1,900, the actual combined total will potentially be 2,300.

Additionally, as the southern portion of MISD continues to grow, it is likely that High School #6 will need to be in the south. Rezoning efforts try to contribute to stability over time as well as efforts to move the fewest number of students the fewest number of times.

When do you expect the new high school (High School #6) to be added?

It is too early to tell. The district will have initial conversations about the new high school; however, no future bond election date has been set.
